Day +19: Elle decided to improve. Her blood pressures have been gorgeous. She was not as puffy either. Blood gasses good, temp good, WBC back up to 0.4 :) She also looked at me, appeared to focus, and appeared to track as well.
There may also be a fungus among us. Possible Aspergillus -quite a buggy repertoire: Pseudomonas, Achromobacter, CMV, and now this. It's just an expected down side to the bone marrow transplant. She has no immune system ...YET. Despite all of this and the other chemo insults, her skin is no worse. The areas that get aired out are actually looking better. Love that.

Day +20: Elle's WBC counts are 0.6 with an actual ANC of 400!! Looks like she may be engrafting the donor cells (they could be her own cells too- can't tell yet) and she is looking really good considering everything she has going on. She is 5.78 kg down from 6.09 so we're pleased about that. We really want to keep control over the fluid overload in her tissues if at all possible. The Docs again are very pleased with her status and we are trying to make small adjustments instead of a lot of big changes so we can assess how the changes affect her.
